word, how the hell is 87 a down year? especially considering what preceded it, 84-86 is arguably one of the worst periods for the dead, I mean 85 has some highlights but 86? cmon. 87 was the prologue to a great couple years to come (88-90)

84-86 worst period for the Dead? Are you joking? I would take almost any show from '84-'85 over any show from '88-'95. Even early '86 had some fantastic shows. Post coma, Jerry had noticeably less chops, and they never did come back. He sometimes made up for it with energy but to say '84-'86 was the worst period is seriously selling yourself short on some great shows.

Thanks for now reminding me that all the Virginia (Richmond/Hampton), Greek, Frost and Red Rocks shows I saw in the 84-86 time span suck. I was making the mistake of thinking I saw some good shows, but I now stand corrected. If I could just have my money back from that long week of three nights at the greek followed by hitching/camping down highway one to ventura in 1984, life would be so much better.

Then again, they really just mailed it in after pig was out . . .
